CLA – Conjugated Linoleic Acid
Weight Control |
Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a group of conjugated octadecadienoic acid isomers derived from linoleic acid; it acts as an inhibitor of lipoprotein lipase (LPL), an enzyme which transfers fats from the bloodstream to the fat cells. As a result of the decreased enzyme activity the transport of fat into fat cells is blocked. At the same time CLA also stimulates the breakdown of stored body fat (lipolysis).
CLA improves body composition by reducing fat and preserving muscle tissue
